“Return of the Kern: California Braces for Booming Paddling Season”

Word is getting out that this year’s rafting season will be one for the record books. Writer Eugene Buchanan caught up with us and wrote an article on California’s upcoming whitewater season. Read Canoe and Kayaks article here on the return of the Kern.

  • Our snowpack is well above 100%.
  • Our lake is at its restricted maximum.
  • We will be rafting into August and September.

If you’re looking to get out on the water then booking early is key, as many of our dates are already sold out. One day trip – your best bet would be our Full Day Upper Kern. Two Day? Our most popular outing we offer is our Two Day Lower Kern.

See you on the water!
